HDMI Xbox problem - resolution doesn't work - old one does

Don't know if anyone can help with this - have an odd xbox 360 problem.

I've had a year old xbox premium connected to Panasonic LXD70 32" screen with a vga cable. Console was set to display 1024 by 768, widescreen, expanded. No display problems.

With the Argos deal thought I'd get a new hdmi one. Its connected to the same tv, with same cable at same resolution but on start up, I get a blank display screen. If I remove the game disk, switch off xbox, restart without a disk in the screen will eventually appear after about 35 secs (should be about 15s). So I'm thinking its having problems with the resolution.

I could buy a HDMI cable but what I want to know is - is my xbox faulty.

Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Haven't tried it but I'll give it a go. The new xbox did install an update when I first switched it on.

I've tried higher resolutions but still have the same problem....

Edit - Scart cable works fine.

Sounds like its faulty - unless there is a setting within stopping it from displaying a game via VGA. Seems unlikley. When using scart, have a look through the setup options to see if it defaults to HDMI or scart.

I know when I use a DVD player with HDMI, it wont display with scart unless I change the output option. (So thats the logic on what Ive said!) But it sounds a bit dumb to have it set to HDMI in the hope that will be what you will be using!

The xbox still doesn't get to the logo screen (with game disk in) even when set to vga. So I think its faulty and going to exchange it at Argos...

is it the same game in the tray each time?
Just wondering if VGA is affected by 50 / 60 hz games?

Fair point, though a bit naf in design if were the case.

I think the OP is right to get them to swap it. Its what consumer laws are for! :thumbsup:

absolutely - was just clutching at straws really!

There's no way I'd keep hold of a new 360 if I had doubt of any faults!

Picked up a new console today and the new one does exactly the same. Looks like its a design or system fault.

Guess I'll just have to buy an HDMI cable....

Thanks for the advice guys - will rep you :thumbsup:
